These Projects need your continued support

Our Fundraising Team would love to hear from you!

Whether as an individual or an organisation we want to hear from you.  It takes around £6.5million to open a new Youth Zone in the UK and as the need for these centres of the community grows so does our focus on securing new funding and new supporters.

How to get OnSide

We need your financial support to make a real difference to the lives of young people throughout the country. We aim to give all young people somewhere safe and inspiring to go in their leisure time. Youth Zones are having a transformational impact on young people now and will continue to do so for future generations.

Your support will make a difference, creating a better future for young people.
